ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department erf Food 
and Resource Economics, University erf Florida, in the estimating program. The State 
Markets Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the County Agents of the 
University of Florida's Extension Service, were also very helpful In supplying area and 
county information. Silpment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. ' 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. TTiese groups Include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Com- 
mittee, Florida Sweet Com Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood 
Sweet Com Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and trans- 
portation firms provided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic 
data used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these 
Individuals and groups is appreciated. 

Fleldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
West Palm Beach; and Larry Amloog of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage , 
production and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the 
direction of Van B, Johnson and Gerald H. Moody of the Florida Crop and Livestock 
Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS— During the growing aea- 
Bon estimates were prepared for most crops ona calendar 
quarter to indicate available supplies for shorter periods 
of time than the entire crop year. The Fall, Winter, 
luring quarterly estimates are combined into a crop 
year total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is 
shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter4s counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested andplanted again to the samecrc^ is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or conyiletely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was 
notsoldor utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acre- 
age and production lost because of economic reasons are 
difficult to define and measure, and are not attempted im- 
less such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alentprice received on an f. o.b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 



Included are packing charges, selling charges, precool- 
ing, top ice, or other costs i«^ich contribute to the value 
of the product at shipping point. The value per unit for 
quantities sold to processors is the average value paid 
for usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door"basi8. 
This value includes tran^ortation and other normal costs 
incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natxiral or 
economic factors are excluded. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, imless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num - 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL)— Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of predetermined load factors . A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most commonly 
used container. The table below gives the net weight used 
per container and the nimiber of containers per hundred- 
weight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1972-73 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida grown vegetables, melcHis, potatoes, and 
strawberries were valued at $400. 1 million for thel972- 
73 crop year. This was an increase of $56. 4 million or 
16 percent over that of 1971-72 andwas the eecood larg- 
est increase of record. Favorable prices and improved 
yields were the major factors contributing to the in- 
creased valuation. 

Potato sales were the largest contributor to the 
higher total value with a gain of $14, 4 million. Both im- 
proved yields and a higher average price more than offset 

the effects of a 2,400 acre decline in harvested acreage. 
Sweet com and cabbage sales also contributed heavily with 
increases of $8. 5 and $8. 1 million, respectively. Toma- 
toes added another $7.2 million with snap beans, e^plant, 
escarole, lettuce, green peppers, spinach, aqaush, water- 
melons and strawberries also having higher dollar sales. 
Total value of sales declined for only two commodities, 
celery and cucumbers. 

Average yields for most major commodities either 
increased or were essentially unchanged, ^inach and let- 
tuce yields were sharply higher with 140 and 61 percent 
increases, respectively. Only one crop, snap beans, fell 
off more than 5 percent in average production per acre. 

All crops with the exception of celery, cucumbers, 
lettuce, spinach and squash registered increases inpr i c e 
last year. The largest price increase was realized for 
potatoes which gained nearly 60 percent while the greatest 
decline was for celery which lost 22 percent. 

Conditions in late July and early August were gen- 
erally dry, but adequate water supplies were available to 
meet irrigation requirements for planting and early crop 
development. Widespread showers and thunder showers 
the latter half of August restored soil moisture in most 
areas and by the end of the month levels were adequate to 
excessive. Temperatures were about normal. September 
was the driest on record. However, some locally hea\'y 
showers fell over points in the southern portion of the 
State. The wet period in late August and a dry September 
were not detrimental to crop progress and favorable con- 
ditions continued into October. Scattered showers, some 
locally heavy, preceded the frequent passages of frontal 
systems during the month. 

Moderate to heavy rains occurred in North Florida 
and over portions of the Eastern Coast November 3-6, 
Largest accumulations were at Pompano where up to 8 in- 
ches fell. The first cool weather of the fall season occur- 
red November 8, as a cold front pushed through the State, 
dropping temperatures into the 30'sand40'a in North Flor- 
ida and the 50's in Central sections. Temperatures con- 
tinued well above normal the first three weeks in Novem- 
ber then dropped off and continued cool into December. 

A cold front accompanied by strcmg, gusty winds 



passed through the State December 16-17. Another cold 
frcmt dropped temperatures into the 30 to 35 degree range 
on December 2l8t. Heavy frost was reported along the 
West Coast, in the Everglades and in Pompano. 

Temperatures moderated with an early January 
warming trend, Hi^ winds on January 11-12 preceded a 
cold front which brought frost and freezing temperatures 
Into the State. Near Ideal conditions returned the follow- 
ing week. Heavy rains fell prior to a cold front January 
29. 

On February 9-10 temperatures in the low to mid- 
30's reached as far south as the Ft, Myers-Immokalee , 
Everglades and Pompano areas. High winds prevented 
heavy frost but windbum damage to crops was consider- 
able. The Southwest vegetable areas received up to 4 
Inches of rain and had some flooding in Icrw spots. IXirlng 
the week, ended February 26 there were several nights 
with minlmums in the 30' s and occasional frost. 

Weather ccmdltlons in early March were generally 
favorable with mild nights and warm days. Winds were 
light to moderate with rainfall limited to a few scattered 
showers. The second week was unseasonablywarm with 
scattered showers and thunderstorms. Winds and show- 
ers on the weekend of March 17-18 preceded generally 
cooler temperatures. Much of Central area had minlmums 
in the low 30' s Monday morning the 19th, Moderate to 
heavy winds Saturday the 24th preceded rains of up to 2 in- 
ches in many of the North and Central areas. Generally 
favorable weather followed the wind and rain but addition- 
al shower activity occurred in the North and North Central 
areas on the 29tli. 

In early April heavy rains, moderate to gusty 
winds and cooler temperatures dominated the weather pic- 
ture. The majority of rainfall was in the North and Cen- 
tral parts of the State and ranged from 2 to 3 inches in the 
Hastings-Palatka area, 4 to 6 inches in A lac hu a County 
and 6 to 8 inches in Hillsborough County, The Southern 
farming areas were generally dry and irrigation was active 
to maintain adequate soil moisture. The cooler tempera- 
tures cOTitinued into the second week with some frost pock- 
ets m the Everglades where temperatures dipped briefly 
into the mld-30'8 on the mornings of the 11th and 12th. 

Many of the Southern growing areas were dry dur- 
ing most of May even though spotty and light to moderate 
showers frequently occurred. Typical weather patterns 
prevailed as the harvest season moved into June. Tem- 
peratures were near normal to slightly above In most of 
the areas throughout the month. On June 7-8, a tropical 
wave moved across the State from the Southeast to the 
Northwest. 

Much of the weather data was supplied byESSA and 
the Frost Warning Service.

SNAP BEANS 
1972-73 



Florida growers produced 4. 1 mllUoo bushels 
of bush and pole beans during the 1972-73 season. Har- 
vested acres at 37, 100 was 1,000 acres more than last 
year. The increase in acreage, however, was not enough 
to offset the decline in yield to 111 bushels per acre. Hilfl 
was 4 percent less then the previous season. 

The average f. o. b. price oi $5. 29 per bushel 
was the highest of record, exceeding the previous hig^ of 
the 1969-70 seasra by 20 cents. The favorable prices re- 
ceived by the growers resulted in a record crop value of 
$21. 7 million, an increase of 10 percent over last year's 
high of $19. 7 million. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida 
with the exception of the East Central and Southwest. The 
Southeast, with 87 percent of the total acreage planted. Is 
the major producing area. Pole beans are produced pri- 
marily In Dade County with small acreages also grown In 
the West and West Central areas. 



Earliest supplies of snap beans are available 
from West Florldawlth the North, West Central^Everglades, 
and Southeast districts also providing Fall production. The 
Southeast is the sole source of supply during the Winter. 
The other areas resume production In the ^rlng. 

Snap beans were available from September to 
June. Monthly sales were relatively steady from Novem- 
ber through January, smd tapered some in February before 
reaching a good level In March. Peak marketings for 
1972-73 were In April when nearly one-fifth of the pro- 
duction was sold. 

Intermittent rains and winds hampered crop 
progress In Pompano. Yields were Improving toward the 
end of the season but were lowered by outbreaks of rust 
In some of the fields. The pole bean crop In Dade ex- 
perienced generally favorable weather and sustained high 
j^elds throughout the season. 



CABBAGE 
1972-73 



Production of cabbage in Florida totaled 8, 2 
million sacks and crates during the 1972-73 seascm. The 
gross value was a record $23. 8 million and exceeded the 
previous high set in 1969-70 by 49 percent. The average 
f, o. b. price of $2.91 per crate was up from the $2.08 re- 
ceived in 1971-72, and was 18 cents more than the pre- 
vious high of $2. 73 for the 1969-70 season. 

Total acres planted during the season at 18, 300 
was 4 percent less than last season, however, the 17,400 
acres harvested was only 1 percentbelow a year ago. The 
average yield was a record 471 crates per acre, 11 crates 
more than the previous high of 460 crates attained in the 
1967-68 and 1968-69 crop years. 

Sales remained heavy during the January-May 
period. Peak marketings occurred in March and April 
when production exceeded 1. 8 million crates and sacks. 

Hastings continued to be the principal area of 
production with 50 percent of the State's harvested acres 
and 45 percent of the total volume. The North Central area 



ranked second with 4, 200 harvested acres. This was 24 
percent of the State's acreage and total output. West Cen- 
tral growers obtained the bestyield in the State, averaging 
635 crates per acre. 

Seedbeds were prepared and transplanting was 
underway in North Florida during August. Transplanting 
and direct seeding was active in most areas of the State 
by mid-September. Some early cabbage had to be re- 
seeded in Dade Coimty because of heavy rains. 

Earliest cuttings were made in the Hastings 
area in early November. Harvest also started in the East 
Coast sandlands and in Sanford during the mcwith. Below 
freezing temperatures in January caused only minor dam- 
age. Short periods of heavy rains caused leeching of fer- 
tilizer and some root damage which reduced size and yield 
to some extent in late February. By early April, Southern 
areas were completing harvest and the buBc of the volume 
was from the Hastings and North Central areas. After 
mid-May supplies declined sharply with most production 
sold by mid-June.

CARROTS 
1972-73 



Carrot production in Florida continues to in- 
crease. Although growth has been slow, acreage planted 
and harvested has increased almostyearly since the early 
1960's. The crop is utilixed for both fresh market and 
processing. 

The muck soils around Zellwood and in the 



Everglades provide a good medium for growth. The mini 
or finger-8i«ed carrots usually begin harvesting in Octo- 
ber and continue available into May, Regular-siaed car- 
rots are harvested from November to June, Most Inter - 
state shipments were- recorded in the December-May per- 
iod. Peak movement occurred during March and April. 



CELERY 
1972-73 



Florida celery marketings of 8. 1 million crates 
were harvested from 11,500 acres. IXiring the 1972-73 
growing season, the average yield of 705 crates per acre 
was the highest since 1960-61. 

Priceswere generally favorable in 1972-73 but 
at a lower level than the record high prices of 1971-72. 
The season began with good prices but they declined to a 
low point in March, then gained momentum and ended 
strong. The growers average f. o. b. price of $3. 84 per 
crate was down $1. 10 from the record of $4. 94 received 
the previous season, but was $1. 30 more than in 1970-71. 
The crop was valued at $31.1 million, a decrease of 18 
percent from the record high $37. 9 million received last 
year. 

The Everglades, with 83 percent of the harves- 
ted acreage, was the foremost area of production through- 
out the season. The North Central area with 14 percent of 
the acreage also pro\ ided continuous supplies during the 
1972-73 season. Sarasota furnished the remaining pro- 
duction, with first cuttings in late December and continued 
harvest into June. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding was imder- 
way in early June. Transplanting began in the Everglades 



and Zellwood in early August. Scheduled plantings in the 
Everglades continued Into mid-April, while some acreages 
in the North Central district we re still being planted in May. 
Growers in Sarasota planted wedcly from October to late 
March. 



Harvest began in late October and supplies 
reached good volume by mid-November in time for the 
Thanksgiving Day demand. Growing conditions were favor- 
able and excellent yields were obtained. Disease was not 
a major problem and quality remained good to excellent 
throughmost of the season. About 9 percent of the planted 
acreage was not harvested, which was about normal for 
abandonment. 

Celery production was relatively stable from 
December through May. Cutting was declining seasonally 
during the last half of May with June supplying less than 
6 percent of total production. Harvesting of late acreage 
continued into July. 

Celery is subject to a Federal Marketing 
order administered by the Florida Celery Committee, 
Their field supervisors provide acreage and production 
data. In cooperation with the Committee, these data are 
assembled into weekly and monthly rejxjrts. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1972-73 



Chinese cabbage was grown primarily at Zel- 
lwood and in the Everglades. Harvest was underway in 
September. Volume was light through October but in- 
creased sharply in November. January and February pro- 
duction was mostly from the Everglades with the West Cen- 
tral and North Central districts furnishing additional sup- 
plies. Production continued to increase and supplies 
reached peak levels in March. During April, Zellwood 
was furnishing increasing amounts while production in the 



Everglades was declining seasonally. A large part of the 
production sold during May was fromhar\'est in Zellwood, 
By early June the season was essentially complete. 

Yields and quality were generally good through 
the season. The crop suffered only minor damage from 
adverse weather during the winter months. Production 
during the peak months of March and April was the highest 
in several years.

SWEET CORN 
1972-73 



Florida, the largest sweet com producer In the 
United States, marketed 12. 9 million crates during the 
1972-73 season. Production at this level was more than 
18 percent above the previous season and the largest on 
record. Growers harvested 52, 900 acres, down 5 percent 
from the 55, 700 acres harvested during the 1971-72 sea- 
son. This was the smallest acreage harvested since the 
1964-65 crop. A favorable growing season resulted in 
excellent yields, averaging a record 244 crates per acre. 

Prices received during the season were gener- 
ally favorable and resulted In an average f. o, b. return of 
$2. 95 per crate, up 24 cents from the previous season 
and a new high for the crop. With record prices and pro- 
duction, the total value of nearly $38 million exceeded 
last season's record by 29 percent. The value of sweet 
corn ranked second in the State In vegetable crops and con- 
tributed nearly 10 percent of the total returns for all vege- 
tables, potatoes and melons. 



First pulling started in the Everglades In early 
October and reached the Fall peak In November. The de- 
clining harvest In the Everglades during December was 
partially offset by the light. Increasing supplies from the 
East Coast sandlands. Marketings continued at low levels 
through January and February. The Everglades Spring 
deal was underway by the end of March as "inside" acreage 
furnished light volume. "Outside" acreage moved Into 
production the latter half of April. The Everglades be- 
came the primary source of supply In late April as the 
East Coast phased out. The transition of harvest from the 
Everglades to Zellwood took place In late May. Zellwood 
Increased to full volume by mld-June. The season was 
essentially complete In early July. 



Small acreages furnished supplemental volume 
at Zellwood during the early Fall, at Ft. Myers during the 
Winter, and at Sarasota in the ^ring. 



First plantings of the seasonwere underway In 
late July in the Everglades. Although rain delays occurred 
seeding Increased weekly. Hot, rainy weather was hard 
on young seedlings but replanting was minimal. Seeding 
on the East Coast began in late September and increased 
in October. 



Weather during the season was generally favor- 
able. Rains created minor problems early in the season 
but mostly caused planting delays. Strong winds and hea- 
vy rains caused some damage to young plants in Dade Coun- 
ty and other eastern areas in late November. Cold dam- 
age was limited during the winter months. 



CUCUMBERS 
1972-73 



Florida's production of cucumbers during the 
1972-73 crop year totaled 3.3 million bushels, down 3 per- 
cent from 1971-72. The 15,300 acres planted continues 
the downward trend of acreage for this commodity. How- 
ever, the acreage harvested has essentially been stable 
during the past three seasons ranging from 14,000 to 
14, 500 acres. Average yield was off slightly to 226 bush- 
els per acre. Total production was valued at $13. 2 mil- 
lion with each bushel returning to the grower an average 
of $4. 05 on an f. o. b. basis. 



The production of cucumbers Is well distributed 
across the State, The Southwest area, with 39 percent of 
the harvested acreage during 1972-73 furnished about one- 
third of the total volume. The West Central area boosted 
overall plantings for the second time in as many years 
and increased harvested acreage to 32 percent of the State 
total. This area provided another third of the State's out- 
put. The areas in the West, North, North Central and 
Southeast provided the remaining third of the year's mar- 
ketings. 



Supplies in 1972-73 were generally available 
from October to June. However, production in the Winter 
months was very light and amounted to a little over 5 per- 
cent of the total production sold. The recorded shipments 
moving out-of-state for the January-March period are pri- 
marily off-shore and truck imports re-sold in mixed loads. 



Winds and heavy rains hampered the crop pro- 
gress during the 1972-73 growing season. Cold winds a- 
round mid-January caused moderate to heavy damage to 
young plantings and resulted In a large amount of replant- 
ing. Recurring winds continued to affect the plantings and 
harvest In most areas throughout the Spring season.

EGGPLANT 
1972-73 



Plantings of 1, 850 acres were 50 acrds more 
than in the 1971-72 crop year. The increased acre^e 
planted reversed a trend that has shown a continual de - 
cllne in acreage since the 1964-65 season. Harvested 
acres at 1, 800 were 3 percent more than the 1, 750 acres 
harvested last year. Yield continued to maintain the high 
level attained last year, and was virtually unchanged at 
596 bushels per acre. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.1 million 
bushels and approached the production obtained in the early 
to mid-sixties. Total value rose 15 percent to $3. 7 mil- 
lion primarily as a result of an increase in the average 
price to $3. 48 a bushel. 

The distribution of the sales of eggplant re- 
turned to a more normal pattern. The record warm win- 
ter in 1971-72 resulted in rapid maturity and abnormally 
heavy sales from February through ApriL Volume was 
heaviest in November and June with the smallest number 



of sales In Februaiy. Moderate supplies were available 
in October, January, March and April with good supplies 
in December and May. 

The Southeast area around Pompano continued 
to harvest the greatest amount of acreage with 67 percent 
of the total. The Northern and Central areas each had 12 
percent with the remaining 9 percent of the acreage in 
the Southwest. 

Production is continuous throughout the entire . 
crop year in the Southeast and Southwest, while the crops 
in the West and North and in Central areas are for Fall 
and Spring harvest only. 

Earliest sales were from cuttings in the West 
and Northern growing areas with the first supplies avail- 
able in September. Harvest progressed southward in the 
Fall, continued through the Winter in the southern areas, 
then moved northward in the ^ring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1972-73 



The production of escarole and endive (in- 
cluding chicorj') during the 1972-73 season totaled 3. 8 mil- 
lion crates, one of the largest crops on record. The 6, 500 
acres harvested were down 18 percent from the previous 
season and were the least harvested since 1967-68, How- 
ever, the drop in acreage was more than offset by a sharp 
increase in yield to a record 582 crates per acre. Prices 
were generally favorable during the marketing period. The 
season average price was $2. 27 per crate, f, o. b. This 
average was 22 percent more than the previous year and 
was slightly above 1970-71. The total value of sales at 
$8. 6 million was 34 percent above the last season and 13 
percent greater than the previous record set in 1970-71. 

The Everglades which had a 78 percent share of 
the total harvested acreage, began seeding in late August, 
Weekly planting schedules continued to befoUowed through 
most of March. Light harvest began in mid-October and 
supplies were continuous through May. The mucklands 
around Zellwood, which contained a large portion of the re- 
maining 22 percent share of the acreage, were also being 
harvestedby mid-October, however, very limited acreages 



in this area were planted for January-March cutting. 



Smaller acreages grown on the Lake Placid and 
Sarasota mucklands also furnished supplemental supplies 
during most of the season. 

Sales started slow in October but good volimie 
was reached in November. Marketings gradually in- 
creased to the March peak, then declined in April as the 
Everglades began phasing out for the season. Good sup- 
plies mostly from Zellwood continued through May, with 
the Sarasota area furnishing supplemental volume. 

Growing conditions w e re generally favorable 
during the entire season, however, warm temperatures 
were not conducive to good weed control. A cooler period 
during late November was helpful. High winds caused 
some dirt problems and tip bum in December but recovery 
was rapid. In late January there was some frost damage 
in the Sarasota area and heavy rains delayed harvest. 
Scattered frost occurred in pockets in the Everglades in 
February and April but damage was minor.

LETTUCE 
1972-73 



Florida lettuce growers produced a rec or d 1.0 
million hundredweight during the 1972-73 season. This 
production topped the 1971-72 season by 73 percent. A 7 
percent increase in acreage combined with a record yield 
of 177 cwt. accounted for the record crop. The season 
average f.o.b. price of $8. 65 was 20 percent belcnr the 
previous season but was above grower returns in other 
recent years. 

Ac reage , production and value statistics for lettuce 
in this bulletin combined the various types into a single 
estimate. These types include the predominant leeberg 
and Romaine, as well as Boston, Bibb and Leaf. 

The Everglades accounted for 79 percent of the 
planted acreage. The Glades mucklands is the major 
source of a continuous supply which begins in October and 
ends in May. Zellwood is the other major producing area 
with Sarasota and the Lake Placid mucklands contributing 
to supplies during much of the season. 

Seeding was underway by early September. All 
areas were active by mid-month with the Everglades, 



Sarasota and Lake Placid scheduling plantings through 
March , to produce a continuous supply of the several types 
from November through May. The Central area normally 
discontinues production on the mucklands from December 
until April. However, the warmer sandliands around 
Zellwood provide limited supplies during the mid- season. 

Harvest was underway by early October with light 
volume continuing through the month. Supplies of all types 
increased in November with growers cutting in all areas. 
Volume Increased sharply in December and remained 
steady through February. The Everglades District was 
furnishing the bulk of the supplies by early January. Pro- 
duction increased in March and reached a peak ia April 
when the Central areas resumed full production to supple- 
ment the continued Everglades harvest. Production drop- 
ped sharply in May as the season came to a close. 

Weather was generally favorable during the crop 
year. Brief periods of cold weather, frost and high winds 
during the winter months caused some minor damage. 



PEPPERS 
1972-73 



During 1972-73, a total of 5.8 million bushels 
of peppers were produced on the 14, 100 harvested acres. 
The average yield of 410 bushels per acre was the highest 
since the 1920-21 season the first year of official 
estimates, when a yield of 414 bushels was attained. 



The cropwas valuedat $26.8 million an increase 
of 18 percent over the previous year. Prices were gen- 
erally favorable throughout most of the season and were 
fairly stable from October through June, The monthly 
average f.o.b. price hit a high of $6.00 per bushel in 
April then fell to a season low of $3.85 in May. 

Marketings started out light in October, were 
increasing in November, then held fairly" steady in Dec- 
ember and January. February supplies were generally 
light and March and April were building toward a May 
peak. June sales fell off to a moderate level. 



Planted acreage increased substantially in the 
Southwest area where the bulk of the peppers are planted. 
Increased acreage was also noted in the Central and North- 
em growing areas. The crop in the Southeast continued 
to decline. The shift in plantings away from the South- 
east district can be explained in part by the problems en- 
countered with mosaic during the winter months. 

Heavy rains in early September washed beds and 
caused flooding of low spots. Resetting of some crops 
was necessary. Damsige was heaviest in fields not on 
plastic. Strong winds in late December hit the southern 
growing areas and considerable spot resetting was 
required. Mosaic became a serious problem in the Pom- 
pano area in late December and continued to reduce yields 
throughout the remainder of the season. However, crops 
in the outlying districts were not as affected by mosaic. 
Weather conditions in March and April were favorable for 
crop growth and fruit development and contributed to the 
unusually heavy volume that moved to markets in May.

POTATOES 
1972-73 



The 1973 Irish potato crop In Florida w«b out- 
standing. A record yield of 182 hundredwel^t was ob- 
tained and an average price of $5,49 was received. Pro- 
duction from the Winter- Spring acreage, at 5. 5 million 
hundredweight, was nearly 20 percent more than the low 
yielding crop of 1972. This increase occurred even ttiough 
the 30,200 acres planted and harvested was 2,400 acres 
less than the acreage harvested during 1972. Total sales 
were $30.3 million, a 90 percent increase over the 
$15. 9 million realized in 1972. 

Weather and soil conditions in 1972-73 were 
conducive to higher yields. The winter acreage averaged 
195 cwt. Spring yields, though not as high , were very 
good. Hastings yields ave raged 180 cwt. and "other" 
spring acreages averaged 150 cwt. The seasonal yields 
were weighted to obtain the crop year total of 182 cwt. 
The two previous seasons were low in yields, 141 and 134 
cwt. , respectively. The 1970 average was nearer normal 
at 162 cwt. 



The high market in 1973 was anticipated. The 
Fall 1972 storage stocks reported in January 1973 were 
down 12 percent from a year earlier. Inflation, of course, 
also had an influence. The S5. 49 f. o. b, level price re- 
ceived for all grades and sizes, all methods of sale, was 
the highest in Florida since 1920. That year's production 
of 1. 3 million cwt. averaged a record $6. 62 per cwt. 



The South Florida winter acreage was about 
81 percent red-skinned LaCosta and LaRouge varieties 
grown primarily for table stock sales. The remaining 19 
percent were for processing, mostly chip stock. 

Spring potatoes at Hastings were planted about 
97 percent white-skinned. Utilization was heavy to chip 
stock. White B's and creamers were used for canning and 
freezing. The Sebago variety comprises a heavy p r o - 
portion of the white-skinned plantings and a considerable 
acreage is normally under contract, either to chipping 
firms, or brokers. Open maiket sales were strong and 
held the average price high. A large percentage of the 
Hastings crop was again marketed bulk, usually unwashed. 
Nearly 12 percent of the crop was moved by rail. 

South Florida harvested over 50 percent of its 
"Winter" crop after April 1, going into May with about 6 
percent of the volume. All the spring potatoes, Hastings 
and "other", were dug in April, May and June but the 
heaviest volume was in May. 

The "other" spring areas had variable yields. 
Both whites and reds in South Hillsborough and Manatee 
Counties were hit on April 4 by a very heavy rain, about 
5. 75 inches in a 3 1/2 hour period. Yields were reduced 
appreciably. The season ended with har\'est well intoJune, 



RADISHES 
1972-73 



A good supply of high quality red and white 
radishes were available from Florida during the 1972-73 
season. Some wedc to week fluctuations in volume occur- 
red partly due to adverse weather and the usual holiday 
lulls. 

Seeding of the 1972-73 crop was underway in 
the Everglades and North Central areas in late August and 
early September, A few early loads were pulled in late 



September and harvest was in full swing by mid-October 
with a steady supply of both reds and whites moving from 
the Everglades and the Zellwood areas by early November. 
Har^'est continued active during December with Sarasota 
and Lake Placid furnishing additional supplies. Shipments 
by truck, rail and mixed cars leveled off until the end of 
February, Peak movement was reached in March, then 
fell off slightly in April and May. The season was essen- 
tially complete by June 1. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1972-73 



Production of spinach in Florida du r ing the 
1972-73 season was the highest since 1968-69, The 6,250 
tons delivered to processors was more than triple the 
previous year's record low crop but still only about half 
the production level of the mid-sixties. 

While planted acreage at 1, 700 declined 23 
percent from the previous year, harvested acreage at 
1,300 increased 30 pe r cent. The average yield of 4, 8 



tons per acre was more than double that of last year. 
Price per ton averaged $51, 30, a decline of $4, 90 from 
the previous year. The crop was v a 1 u e d at $321,000, 
nearly triple that of the short crop a year earlier, and the 
highest since 1968-69. 

Generally favorable weather prevailed du ring 
much of the growing seascai. Frost occurred on several 
occasions from December through February and was bene- 
ficial for weed control.

SQUASH 
1972-73 



Florida's production of squash during the 
1972-73 crop year totaled 1.5 million bushels. Although 
harvested acreage has fluctuated considerably since the 
1959-60 growing season, production has remained fairly 
constant. The 10,800 acres planted and 9,800 acres har- 
vested continued a trend of increased acreage for this 
crop, and was near the level of the early to mid-sbrties. 
The 1972-73 yield of 151 bushels per acre is about "aver- 
age" for the past five years. 

Average f . o. b. prices during the fall quarter 
were below those of the previous year. Favorable returns 
from sales during the period December to March offset 
some of the lower prices in the Fall and Spring quarters 
and held the season average price at a level just slightly 
below that of a year ago. Total sales of $8. 1 million were 
up 9 percent from the previous season and set a new re- 
cord high for this commodity. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow 
crookneck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 



Dade County, with almost 30 percent of the State's har- 
vested acreage in 1972-73, produces yellow crookneck 
almost exclusively. The Pompano area, in addition to 
"being a major producing area, is also an important mar- 
ket for squash grown in other sections of the State, espe- 
cially when local supplies reach low levels during the win- 
ter months. The Southwest area produces continuous sup- 
plies of most types of squash. Central, North and West 
Florida areas provide good volume of most types during 
the Fall and Spring shipping seasons. 



Squash is one of the few crops in Florida tih a t 
is shipped every month of the year. Summer movement, 
however is generally light and usually goes to local mar- 
kets. The 1972-73 season got off to a fast start with sup- 
plies at a good level by the end of October. Marketings 
continued to increase to the Fall peak in December. Sales 
fell off in January and February, then began increasing in 
March as early "Spring" plantings in the southern areas 
moved into production. Full volume was reached in April. 
All areas in the State were in production by May. Only 
very light supplies were available after June 1 . 



STRAWBERRIES 
1972-73 



Florida's strawberry growers produced 1, 8 
million flats of berries during the 1972-73 season, a de- 
cline of 5 percent from 1971-72. The 1,400 acres in pro- 
duction was 200 acres below the previous yearandwas the 
smallest acreage since 1959-60 when 1,400 acres was 
also planted. A record yield of 1, 317 flats per acre was 
attained during 1972-73. This yield bettered the previous 
high of 1,219 obtained in 1971-72 by 98 flats. The average 
f.o.b. retui-n per flat, at $4.41, was $1,17 more than the 
previous year. While production was down slightly, the 
excellent price enabled growers to realize $8.1 million 
for their crop. Both the average price and total value 
were at record high levels. 

Laying of plastic and other f i eld preparation 
was active in September in the Hillsborough and Dade 
County producing areas. Earliest plants were set in Octo- 
ber in the West Central district, Dade County and North 
Florida areas. Planting in early November was delayed 
because of plant shortages, but was essentially complete 



by the end of the month. 

Light picking was underway by early January 
in the Hillsborough and Dade County areas. Bradford 
County moved into production in the middle of March. 
Normally there are two peak production periods during the 
season. The first was reached during the latter part of 
January and continued into the first week of February. 
The second occurred during the middle two weeks of 
March. Around mid-April most of the commercial har- 
vest was completed and fields were opened to the public. 

Rains and cold weather were both detrimental 
and beneficial during the period of early harvest. The 
rains delayed some harvesting but helped in boosting ber^ 
ry size and quality. A heavy fruit set and generally good 
sizes resulted in the record yield being attained even 
though late season harvest was hampered by labor short- 
ages in some localities.

TOMATOES 
1972-73 



The fresh maiket and prcx^esslng tomato crop 
value of $112. 4 million surpassed the $100 million mark 
for the second consecutive year. This was an increase of 
7 percent from 1971-72, but less than the gain of 38 per- 
cent in value realized in that year. The 5 percent in- 
crease in acreage planted and harvested was the major 
reason for the higher crop value. The f. o. b. price was 
a little above last season while the overall yields, fresh 
and processing combined, was down slightly. 

Total production in equivalent 30-lb.cartons in- 
creased from 23. 6 million in 1971-72 to 24. 6 million in 
1972-73. Of this total, 23. 1 million cartons moved in 
fresh market channels while 1.5 million cartons were util - 
izedfor processing. Average yield fell off to 537 cartons 
per acre. However, the yield was still about average for 
the previous two seasons. All of the increased production 
was due to the 2,200 acre Increase in harvested acres. 

Peak production was reached in May with 23. 6 
percent of the total fresh maiket sales. Good supplies 
were available in November and December, while market- 



ings in January and April were at a moderate level. Toma- 
toes are generally available from late October to mid-June. 



Dade County continued to lead the State in har- 
vested acreage with 18, 645 acres. The Palmetto-Rudtin 
area was second in acreage followed by the Southwest and 
Ft. Pierce-Pompano areas. A small acreage of ground 
crops was grown in the West, North and North Central 
areas. 



Heavy rains in early September caused some 
spot resetting but was helpful in restoring soil moisture 
to adequate levels. Early season progress was excellent 
and resulted in above normal sales during November. 
Rains and labor shortages reduced supplies going intoDe- 
cember. The frequent passage of cold fronts during Jan- 
uary and February hampered production during the win- 
ter quarter. Growing conditions were generally good dur- 
ing March and April. Although the May production was 
very heavy, all available supplies were not harvested be- 
cause of problems with transportation and labor shortages. 



WATERMELONS 
1972-73 



Florida watermelon growers produced a good crop 
despite adverse conditions, including weather and the 
lack of adequate transportation at crucial periods. Total 
production was 7.8 million hundredweight, nearly 16 per- 
centabove the 1971-72 season. Planted acreage was down 
11 percent and harvested acres was off 13 percent from 
the year before. Growers realized a yieldof 160 cwt. per 
acre, the highest since the 1965-66 season. A record 
f. o.b. price, averaging just over 3 cents per pound, was 
an incentive to harvest as many melons as possible. The 
total value of the crop was placed at $23. 9 million,47 per- 
cent above the year before. 

The watermelon season usually begins in the Ft. 
Myers- Immokalee area in late March or early April. 
The season progresses through Central Florida during 
May while Northern areas furnish hea\y June volume. 
West Florida's harvest begins in June and continues well 
into July. 

Watermelon seeding was underway in Immokalee 
in early Etecember, while land preparation was very 
active in other parts of the South and Central areas for a 
Etecember-January planting start. Some re-planting was 
necessary following cold winds in December. 



Early plantings around Wauchula were hit by cold 
and rain in January. In many cases two orthree plantings 
were required to get stands. 

Plants improved with warmer weather in March. 
By mid- March planting was active in North and West 
Florida. Recurring rains hampered seeding in the North 
and West Distrlcts^caused light to moderate damage to 
young plants and reduced plantings for some growers. 
Some fields were abandonded later due to poor stands. 



The Southwest made first cuttings around mid- 
April^a little later than usual. Early demand was good and 
continued through the season. Supplies increased in May 
as the Central areas came into production. Harvest con- 
tinued to move northward but supplies became spotty as the 
crop in North and West Florida was delayed by adverse 
weather. 

Although transportation shortages hampered move- 
ment in late June, peak seasonal movement was reached 
during.that month. Heaxy sales continued into July because 
of the lateness of the crop in North and West Florida.

OTHER CROPS 
1972-73 



Cantaloups are grown primarily In the Southwest 
and North Central areas. Nearly all of the production 
sold goes through local maricets In bushel containers. 
About 93 percent of the 1972-73 crop was harvested and 
sold in May and June. Available supplies move from the 
Southwestern portion of the State northward as the sea- 
son progresses. 

Cauliflower is available from mid -January into 
early April. Supplies come primarily from acreages 
around Ru^in with supplementary volume from Ught 
harvest in the North Central area. 

Cuban vegetables are fairly recent to Florida veg- 
etable production, Commercialharvest began in the early 
60' s. The crops consist of batatas-boniatos, calabazas- 
pumpkin, malangas-yautias, and yucas. These commodi- 
ties are produced principally In the Dade C ounty area with 
shipments generally continuous throughout the year, 

Collard, turnip, and mustard greens are grown for 
both fresh and processing markets. These commodities 
are grown principally in the North Central and Everglades 
districts. Supplies are available from October through 
June with the heaviest movement in the J anuary-March 
period. Movements in other months are very light , Mar- 
ket garden greens are grown adjacent to most of the large 
populaticm centers. 



Ckra is grown in many areas of the State during 
warm seasons of the year. Much of the production goes 
to the consumer via local markets. Area availability de- 
pends upon location and the time of year. Diterstate sup- 
plies for 1972-73 were moderate in March and April, 
heavy in May and Jime. 

Green onions and ledks are produced In the North 
Central area mostly for local market sales. A limited 
quantity of dry ocxlons was also available. 

Parsley Is available In both the curly and plain 
varieties. The bulk of the supplies are from production 
in the Everglades and Zellwood. Limited supplies, most 
going to In-state markets, are available from Sarasota 
and Lake Placid. 

Southern peas are grown prlmarltyln the North- 
west and West Central Florida areas, with some early 
acreage grown In Dade Coimty. Limited supplies are 
available from September through December with most of 
the crop year producticai In the April - Jime period. A 
large portion of this commodity's production moves to 
processors or through local markets. 

Watercress Is available year-roimd. The major 
source of supply is Ovledo. Nearly all of the production 
is shipped to Northeastern markets.
